At this past weekend’s ComiConn on Trumbull, CT, a very kind gentleman named Brian Cross presented me with the accompanying image you see here: Green Lantern #275, by me, Darryl Banks and Terry Austin, printed on cardstock, trimmed to comic-book size and slipped into a protective mylar. Of course, the issue doesn’t really exist, it’s a “what if” scenario pondering what might be if Darry, Terry and I were still producing Kyle stories.
Thanks to a commission piece by Darryl, with colors by Tom Chu, Brian was able to recreate the other cover elements and put together the package. The complete story of the image, along with Darryl’s original ink art, can be seen here:
Darryl’s not producing the a lot of comics work these days; instead, he’s doing a lot of commercial art. But we’re absolutely going to work together again when the right opportunity arises. Hopefully Darryl and I will both be the Cleveland Comic Con on Oct. 19. Maybe we can hatch some plans there…
Many thanks to Brian for creating and delivering such a unique piece.
